During a wide-ranging interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday, talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh used what could have happened in 2016 to answer Hannity’s question about what will happen if Democrats retake the House this November.
Stating that he didn’t want to “dramatize” the situation, Limbaugh brought up what might have been to illustrate his point.
“What if Hillary had won in 2016?” asked Rush. “Stop and think of that. There wouldn’t be a roaring economy. There wouldn’t have been any tax cuts, there wouldn’t have been a rollback on regulations, there wouldn’t be any squaring of the deal with NATO.”
Describing the state of the economy under former President Obama, Limbaugh noted that things on that front would have continued unabated. (RELATED: MSNBC Correspondent: Democrats Should ‘Worry’ About Latino Vote In Midterms)
“They don’t even want to make America great,” he told Hannity. “They resent the whole idea of America becoming great. They resent the idea of America as a superpower, running the world for good.”
After a commercial break, Rush got specific about what could happen if Democrats retake the House.
“What happens when we lose?” asked Limbaugh before launching into his answer. “Go back and look. If we lose in 2016, if they get the House, folks I’m just going to tell you, whatever Trump wants to do is going to stop. It is going to be paralyzed. It is going to be nothing but in every House committee that is relevant, inspections, investigations, subpoenas. They are going to go back and try to get Kavanaugh thrown out. It’s going to be nothing but two years of ‘get even with Trump for having the audacity to win.’ And the business of the nation is going to be brought to a screeching halt. In the meantime, they are going to try to get rid of the tax cuts. They’re not going to succeed at any of this because the Senate is still going to be in the hands of Mitch McConnell …”
Limbaugh added that he “implicitly trusts” President Trump.
“I think he knows what he’s doing.”
